Looking for Suggestions for Tough North Facing Area

I have a garden strip under the north facing fence, which has been my headache. It's baked under intense sun from early May to early September, and in the shade for the rest of the year.

After trying some plants from Annies which all failed, I decided I still want roses in this area. At first I thought about DA roses for shady area, such as Olivia, but I heard those don't perform well under intense summer sun. Now I am considering healthy Kordes roses, so they can survive fall and winter in the shade, and at the same time, they need to be very sun tolerant to do well in summer. Currently my list has Plum Perfect, Bordeaux, Bliss, and South Africa.

Greatly appreciated for any ideas and suggestions!
